Orkin Laboratory

Location: 44 Binney Street, Dana-16 (DFCI), Boston MA 02115


The goal of the Orkin laboratory is to understand how commitment to specific blood lineages is programmed and how cell-specific patterns of gene expression are established. Since gene expression is controlled by nuclear regulatory factors (transcription factors), efforts have centered on identifying those crucial for development of stem cells or individual lineages. Research encompasses conventional molecular biology and contemporary mouse genetics.
